CampbellCountyCampbell County officials last week reviewed information regarding cluster developments. Also known as “open space development”–the concept, groups homes and structures on a smaller, designated portion of a development parcel, preserving the remaining un-built area as open space; The state requires that a locality allow cluster developments if its population grows 10 percent or more. But, according to the Altavista Journal, in the last census, the County’s population growth was about 7 percent. The Board of Supervisors still has the option of adopting cluster developments and developers could decide whether or not to take the option. A workshop will be held before a final decision is made on the matter.
